Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are available to you and certain members of your family if you are unable to work due to a disability. But in order to qualify for SSD benefits, you must be deemed disabled according to strict guidelines set by the Social Security Administration.
Unfortunately, many people who apply for SSD benefits are denied. Rainwater, Holt & Sexton Injury Lawyers are familiar with the application and appeals process for SSD, and we can help.

You may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if you cannot do the work you did before, you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical conditions, your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or result in death, and you suffer from any of the following conditions:
